I use a Tupperware container flipped over cause it fit perfectly lol but you can use eggcrate easily or for a more finished look you can make it out of acrylic

Yeah I've seen them both ways I just don't know if it's better to have 2, if it's not a big deal, I'll just put 1.

When I put sponges in I usually put them into the first set of baffles to the return chamber bubble trap

Sounds good! Thanks. This is kinda off topic but is that all I need to seed a quarantine tank? It seems like it wouldn't be enough with no live sand or rock?
